After you install the TuneUp Utilities on your Windows, by default it is configured to automatically initialize the Automatic Maintenance process after every three days of the PC usage. The Automatic Maintenance is initialized when the PC state is idle, and in case of laptop, when the laptop is connected to the direct power supply. If the laptop is not connected to the direct power supply and is running on batteries, the Automatic Maintenance does not initialize even if the threshold time of three days is reached and the PC state is idle.
The default configuration of the TuneUp Utilities application, according to which the Automatic Maintenance is not initialized when the laptop is running on batteries, is set to prevent the
Windows from getting corrupted due to abrupt shutdown that may occur if the Automatic Maintenance process is running, and the laptop runs out of battery.
In your case, if you are sure that you want the TuneUp Utilities application to initialize the Automatic Maintenance process even when the laptop is running on batteries, you can follow the instructions the way they are given in this tutorial.
Warning: While allowing the TuneUp Utilities to initialize the Automatic Maintenance even when the laptop is running on batteries, make sure that you keep the batteries of your laptop more than 75% charged, at least at the scheduled Automatic Maintenance time. If you fail to do so, and the Automatic Maintenance process is obstructed due to abrupt Windows shutdown because of battery outage, you may end up having a corrupted and irreparable copy of Windows operating system.
Here is how you can configure your instance of TuneUp Utilities to initialize the Automatic Maintenance process even when the laptop is running on batteries:
- Using the administrator account, log on to the computer on which you want to configure the TuneUp Utilities application to initialize the Automatic Maintenance when the laptop is on batteries.
